Hi, we are creating an integration between our scheduling system and Canvas. 

From what I read in the API there are two ways of creating calendar events:
The problem with the calendar_events is that (as far as I understand) it is not possible to have a sis_id or a foreign id to connect the calendar_event with our system (except having it as a display:none html element hidden in the event description).
timetable_events has a code property that could be used for this. The problem is that: 1) It is in BETA 2) So far it is not possible to retrieve this code using the API and 3) time_table events have no tilte or description making them a bit limited.
 
The questions are:
  • How do I find out if this is an API worth investing time in?
  • Does anybody know more about this new API?
  • Where can I find more information about its state, possible future and maybe some dates regarding is development? 
 
The only places I have found any reference to it are the release notes announcing that it is there and the API documentation and a github comment.
